  • A Report On American Economics - 916 words
    A report on American economics Most of the problems of the United states are related to the economy. One of the major issues facing the country today is social security. The United States was one of the last major industrialized nations to establish a social security system. In 1911, Wisconsin passed the first state workers compensation law to be held constitutional. At that time, most Americans believed the government should not have to care for the aged, disabled or needy. But such attitudes changed during the Great Depression in the 1930's. In 1935, Congress passed the Social Security Act. This law became the basis of the U.S. social insurance system. It provided cash benefits to only ret ...

  • An Essay On An Economics Article - 776 words
    An Essay On An Economics Article There is a major debate brewing in the Florida water districts. The discussion concerns a company called Azurix and their novel offer. Azurix is a spin-off the huge Houston based gas and oil company Enron. The offer: in exchange for financing a portion of the four billion-dollar everglades clean up, Azurix acquires the ability to sell the water that they store as part of the project. This seemingly innocuous plan can have huge affects on Floridas economy. The privatization of the water management in Florida could work in a positive manner and eliminate the projected shortages by creative management, or it can act negatively and make it harder and more expensi ...

  • Buddhist Economics - 234 words
    Buddhist Economics Most people think that religion and economics dont mix. So you would think the same in the case with Buddhism and economics. But actually the there is a set of rules that go along with our modern day economics that have their own meanings. Buddhists believe that spiritual health and well being go hand in hand. They use the fundamentals of practical ecnomics and mix it with the values and morals of Buddhism. The Buddhist point of view takes the function of work to be at least threefold: to give a man a chance to utilize and develop his faculties; to enable him to overcome his ego-centeredness by joining with other people in a common task; and to bring forth the goods and se ...

    Economics 1966 LRH There are certain characteristics and mental attitudes which cause about 20% of a race to oppose violently any betterment activity or group. Such people are known to have anti-social tendencies. When the legal or political structure of a country becomes such as to favor such personalities in positions of trust, then all the civilizing organizations of the country become surpressed and a barbarism of criminality and economic duress ensues. One of the primary barriers in this society is economics. Supressives (anti-social personalities) have been weaving a web of economic entanglement for societies for some time using economic mis-interpretations or ignorance to involve thos ...

The theory, in its most crudely expressed form, is the reduction of production coupled to the enforcement of demand. Fathers can be arrested for not caring for children, while the price of bread, rent, and services is beyond father's ability to pay. One is arrested as a vagrant if one does not dress well, but the price of clothing through scarcity puts it beyond his reach. There are many, many variations of the same two factors, supply and demand, and these can be played on by huge industries or the State, or robbers, or beggars, or anyone wthout number. A great deal is made of "deflations ...

  • Economics Leading To The Revolutionary War - 1,982 words
    Economics Leading To The Revolutionary War After the end of the French and Indian War in 1763 the American people had taxes placed on them by the British. The British Parliament claimed that by placing the taxes they were defending the colonies for the Americans. During the twelve years following the war, the British enacted a numerous amount of taxes that allowed them to raise revenue from the American economy. This taxing of the American people hurt the American economy and started to push the American colonists toward an independence movement so they could have a free economy. Over the course of the twelve-year period there were six acts enacted to take money from the American economy. Th ...

  • Economics Of Aquaculture United States - 1,436 words
    Economics Of Aquaculture United States Economics of Aquaculture United States Aquaculture is the fastest growing agricultural industry in the United States. In 1990, there were over 100 species cultured; eight species accounted for approximately 70% of total culture, with over 3400 aquaculture operations in the United States. This trend is driven by increased demand for fisheries product and reduced yield from traditional fisheries landings (National Research Council, 1982). Given the increased demand, there is a significant potential for job creation in an expanded aquacultural industry. The estimated U.S. Total Aquaculture Production (including freshwater) has more than doubled from 139,88 ...

  • Economics Of Immigration - 1,228 words
    Economics Of Immigration From the origin of the United States, immigration has been crucial for the economic advancement and expansion of the nation. The US truly is a melting pot of many cultures and ideas, and it has benefited greatly from its diversity. However, with a much-reduced demand for unskilled or low-skilled workers, US policy must adapt so that it can better maximize the net economic benefits of immigration. While this probably does not include a universal drop in the number of legal immigrants, it would include the screening of applicants in such a way that preference is given to more economically beneficial candidates. It would also include making families totally responsible ...

    ... free-rider problem applies to the situation of illegal immigration since these immigrants make use of public goods while not paying income taxes. One major problem of illegal immigration involves the fact that illegal immigrants do not spread out evenly across the nation. They concentrate in certain areas, and the destination states that they choose, like California, pay a heavy toll. U.S. households, in general, end up paying an enormous amount of money because of illegal aliens. A study has found that illegal immigrants drain about 2 billion dollars a year for incarceration, schooling, and Medicaid from destination states such as Texas, California, and Florida.

  • Economics: Proposal To Cut The Budget Deficit - 426 words
    Economics: Proposal to Cut the Budget Deficit The federal budget is an explosive problem which if not acted upon soon, threatens to swallow the entire domestic income. I have placed together several decisions that create a minimal impact upon the economy, yet reduce the federal budget deficit by 2/3s. The aggregate demand curve ultimately will shift, not greatly, to the right as the economy is slightly increased throughout my proposal. To accomplish this feat, the plan to be presented to Congress in January will consist of many revenue increases and some spending increases and decreases. This plan will not decrease the entire deficit to a positive budget because the impacts of that kind of c ...
